The Electoral Commission has launched an investigation into allegations of Russian interference in last year’s Brexit referendum and the 2017 general election.
“It would be naive to assume that what we know happened in the US and France around their elections did not and could not happen here,” Sir John Holmes, the head of the Electoral Commission told BBC Today.
“And there has been evidence coming from the US inquiry that some of that activity was happening.
“What we have done is asked companies like Twitter, Google and Facebook to tell us what was happening here in the same way they did in the US.”
That’s a nice way to deflect attention away from the fact the establishment LOST badly despite all the lies and pro-EU propaganda from the government during the referendum campaign. Come to think of it, when is someone going to investigate all those lies?
While you’re at it, you could look at double voting by students due to the complete absence of identity checks, and the scourge of the first-past the post (FPTP) voting system which blocks any real change and protects the major incumbent parties.
But no, predictably the problem is ‘Russian meddling’.
